Etage Projects (DK)

Founded by Maria Foerlev in 2013, Etage Projects is a Copenhagen-based design gallery specialising in cross-aesthetic methods. The gallery’s programme actively questions and problematises the traditional boundaries between art and design and abstraction and function. Etage Projects works with creatives who shape their praxis in-between established notions of contemporary art and design and seeks to extend and enrich the field of collective and interdisciplinary culture.

Curated for
CHART

For CHART 2021, Etage Projects presents the group show ‘Alting er som det plejer, sådan kan vi bedst lide det’ [“Everything is normal, that’s how we like it best”]; a critical reflection on the concept of sustainability, as a Danish cultural export. The exhibition will present new works by a collective of Danish designers who all received their formal education outside of Denmark. The presentation will take place between CHART and Etage Projects’ Copenhagen space and will be unified by the different designers’ shared interest in incorporating performative elements. Below is a highlight of Victor Miklos Andersen's practice.

Victor Miklos Andersen (DK)

With an experimental and conceptual approach towards design, Victor Miklos Andersen’s work actively seeks to question existing behavioural norms. Informed by both natural habitats and processes, his intuitive exploration of diverse recycled materials embraces the individual and unique properties of each. Miklos Andersen thus introduces abstract elements into the language of design and constructs a contemporary aesthetic that is both materially and politically relevant to our time.

Victor Miklos Andersen (b. 1993, DK) holds an MFA from Design Academy Eindhoven and is currently based between Denmark and France. Since 2016, the artist has been working with Leo Orta as part of the design duo OrtaMiklos, whose work has been exhibited at the Venice Design Biennale, IT (2021), Unique Design x Shanghai in Paris, FR (2020), Design Museum Gent, BE (2020), Design Miami / Basel (2019), Friedman Benda, US (2019), Functional Art Gallery, GE (2019) and COLLECTIBLE Design Fair, BE (2019).
